When I lock my Nexus S, the screen flashes once:

It turns black, then the home screen appears again very shortly, then it's black again.

Do you have this aswell with a Nexus S on ICS 4.0.3? Is there a fix?

I haven't seen this with CyanogenMod 7. It may be a software / your-specific-phone hardware issue. – Broam Jan 3 '12 at 16:13
I haven't seen this on my Nexus S, neither with Gingerbread nor Ice Cream Sandwich. – offby1 Jan 3 '12 at 17:24
Do you use Voodoo Sound / Color? Any custom Kernel? Stock ROM or custom ROM? – Leandros Feb 4 '12 at 16:44
@Leandros None of the above. I did not 'manipulate' the Nexus S in any way. No rooting, no change of hardware or software. I've only installed apps via Marketplace. – user10769 Feb 4 '12 at 18:32
IMM76D also has this problem, in spite of reflash (stock rom) – user14343 Apr 17 '12 at 15:54

It's a software issue with Ice Cream Sandwich as far as I know, so no fix. It may only be present on certain models however, I only have anecdotal evidence for this but I have the issue on my Nexus S model IML74K but know someone with a different model of Nexus S and they don't seem to have the issue...
